What is TPO?
So what is this TPO everyone is talking about? There is an ever increasing demand for durable yet lightweight and energy efficient roofing systems. TPO roofing systems were created specifically to meet that demand. Because these single ply membranes offer superior resistance to UV damage, the elements and chemical exposure; TPO is quickly becoming the commercial roofing system of choice- especially in Central Kansas.
TPO is short for Thermoplastic Polyolefin which refers to polymer blends containing various mixtures of rubber, polypropylene, polyethylene and reinforcing filler. TPO roof membranes are a blend of polypropylene and ethylene propylene polymers encapsulating a reinforcing sheet of polyester membrane.
TPO membrane is modified with UV absorbing agents, flame retardants and other proprietary substances designed to produce superior physical properties. At Geisler Roofing, we value your time.
